Everybody loves a minion, right?! Well, WE DO!
So, since budget is the name of the game, and Halloween costumes were my task, I set out for yet another awesome family costume idea. This year, it HAD to be Despicable Me!
I made the hats, goggles, Gru symbols, Gru’s nose & scarf, and even retro-fitted two pairs of outlet toddler overalls, covering up the awful logo design on the lapel with matching upcycled pockets. My overalls were “vintage” Goodwill. Since I got 3 orders for matching scarf, goggle, and Gru symbol patches, I was able to make all the accessories for a mere $15 extra, after making the orders!
